Bonarda is something of an Argentinian speciality, and here is a great example. It has an alluring nose of vivid red fruit, a hint of violet and a slight roasted herb note in the background. On the palate it is medium bodied and soft textured with fresh fruit combining with subtle spicy notes from a period of barrel ageing. A lovely wine to accompany roasted meats.
Bodega Staphyle was born of the Porretta’s family dream to produce their wines. This all started in 2002 when the family rebuilt their winery that had originally be build in the 1930s. Today this boutique winery marries that tradition with the latest in wine making technology to produce harmonious wines that offer a lot a value.
The vineyards are located in the area of Ugarteche and Agrelo, Luján de Cuyo, known as the first wine region of Argentina.
